You don't really even need new shocks, just shackles for the back, and a torsion bar crank in the front. I've had mine like that with no problem for over a year and a half (knock on wood )

I'll tell you now though that new UCA's make it easier for the shop to get a good alignment for you. Besides that it's a waste of money...
